Students in fire drama failed to evacuate block
8:08am Thursday 17th October 2013 in News
STUDENTS failed to fully evacuate a block of flats following a major fire alert.
Crews from St Mary's fire station were called to a seventh floor property in Deanery halls in Marsh Lane, Southampton, after burnt toast triggered the building's fire alarm system at 2.40am this morning (Thursday).
It triggered the fire service's emergency high rise procedure and a full evacuation of the building was attempted by firefighters.
But a spokesman for Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service said not all occupants left the building when asked to leave.
He added Southampton Solent University will be contacted over the incident.
